You know we have a love for DC Television that we make no apologies for. Who can blame us? We’ve been with Arrow through the good and the bad and we don’t plan on deserting anytime soon.
Actually if anything, they’ve made us love them more. Why? Because Roy Harper is returning.
Even if it’s just for a hot minute, Colton Haynes is returning to the show. The actor who played Roy Harper will be returning in episode 15 for a short arc.
We’ll take it.
“We’re thrilled to announce that Colton Haynes will be reprising his role as Roy Harper,” a statement from executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle said. “Roy is called back to Star City to help resolve an urgent matter with high stakes for the team.”
“His short visit turns into something surprising,” the EPs continue, “when he reunites with Thea and sparks a change in both of their lives that will have long-lasting consequences….”
We have a feeling that Thea will be leaving with Roy and that kind of breaks our heart. She is such a big part of Oliver, that she will be missed. It’s already been such a huge hole left by her limited involvement this season.
Arrow returns from the break on Thursday, Jan. 18, with Episode 10, on The CW.
